Once you find yourself in the world of business, you will realize that there is much more than just doing a good job that influences you and your company. It’s about many other factors as well, including advertising, observing the market, trying to beat competition, and keeping up appearances. It’s not just the way you dress that can determine whether you will sing the next contract or not, but the way your office looks too.

Sharp dressed men and women

It is not necessary to spend all your savings on acquiring designer clothes and pieces so you have no money for food afterwards just so you can look rich. You can achieve the ‘rich and sophisticated’ look without breaking the bank. Wear well-fitting clothes, and make sure every piece on you is clean and in good condition. What is more, you don’t have to wear pieces that have designer logos stamped all over them; designer clothes usually are discreet with their logo placement, but you should make sure all your clothes are of good quality and preferably from natural materials. In addition, you can find a tailor and have at least some items custom made for you – no better way to ensure your clothes are well-fitting.

The space you work in

What good is it to be dressed in the best clothes when you will be sitting in a broken down chair in a dusty office that even has no windows? You need your office to reflect the air of wealth if you would like to attract similar clientele. This means a comfortable couch and armchairs in the waiting room, classy office chairs around your desk, and an office desk made of high-quality materials such as glass, steel, mahogany, and marble. You should also make sure there is enough natural light and plenty of functional and stylish lamps which will make the best atmosphere. However, try not to make your working environment too sterile; make sure your furniture is comfortable, and have live plants and fresh flowers around to liven up the atmosphere.

The details that matter

Painting Fingernails

Remember, it is not just the way you dress and decorate your office that counts, it’s the way you pay attention to details and take care of yourself.

Dirty fingernails are repulsive unless you are a gardener or a mechanic, so manicure is a must. In addition, dandruff all over your shoulders and dirty hair will make you look messy and less professional. Clean hair or at least a hairstyle which will disguise the fact that you are dying to wash it will do the trick; and this is one of the reasons women love braids and buns. Having a few expensive accessories will make you look good and professional even when paired up with plainest possible clothes: good watch, designer sunglasses, expensive tie, or a discreet piece of jewelry.

Remember, keeping up appearances and always looking your best is incredibly important, but that doesn’t mean you should forget about other things completely. Always offer the best service, focus on professionalism, and be honest with your potential and regular clients and customers, as well as with your employers. After all, money doesn’t fall from heaven and you should make an effort and have a lot to offer before you get rich.

Carnivores Can Court Vegetarians.

Carnivores Can Court Vegetarians.

Is it truly possible for these opposites to last? If you’re anything like me, social outings are surrounded by food. Dating a person that has a pallet that is the other end of the spectrum from your own can be challenging. But, it’s not a deal breaker.

You must first realize there are four different types of vegetarian’s out there.
-Semi-vegetarian: The vegetarian that still gets their steak on once in a while.
– Lacto ovo vegetarian: These types eat dairy and eggs.
-Lacto vegetarian: No eggs for this group, but dairy is still acceptable.
-Vegan: Nothing animal based.

When dating one of these types of eaters the first challenge is agreeing on a place to eat. Checking with a restaurant on their offered menu before making a reservation is significant. Plenty of steakhouses now offer vegetarian dishes.

The next obstacle is the most important for both parties, have reverence for the other’s decision. Don’t belittle your date for his/her choice on eating a soy burger. And vegetarians don’t make comments of your date eating Bambi. Respect the choices that one another make. Choosing to resent your date’s decision on the food they put in their bodies will grow into resentment with other issues, non-related.
I had the pleasure to attend dinner the other night with a food-split couple. The interaction between this husband and wife on the consideration of substance was incredible. There were a few light jokes that were passed back and forth as we discussed the obstacles they face as a couple, as the husband pointed out the cracker plate as her vegetarian main course. She lightly pecked at the sight of the rare prime rib he was eyeing up, “Did they cook that for you or just warm it up?” Chuckles followed their slight digs, but she was sincerely happy for him when the chef kindly gave him two slices of prime rib.

If you have health related concerns about what your date is eating, then decide is it valid? One could argue the worry of a carnivore’s cholesterol, but then on the other side of the coin, a meat eater could counter with the worry of a vegetarian not getting enough iron or B vitamins. The time when health related concerns should take place is when they are presented. Example, if you are allergic to what your partner is eating, you see a drastic weight gain or loss by their existing diet, it’s affecting your relationship in more ways than just your meat/veggie loving principals, or you notice other health concerns like shortness of breath.

The wife in this case, gets ill from ingesting meats. She has on occasion had issues with soups made with meat stock. The husband told me, “It was more challenging in the beginning, but now we go to restaurants where we trust the chefs are aware of all ingredients in their food.” I asked them if it has caused issues in their relationship. The husband laughed and said, “Relationships have challenges, liking meat or not, shouldn’t be one of them.”

So if you find yourself pining over that person who does or doesn’t like steak, but you are not sure it could work or not, according to my dining companions, there’s plenty of hope out there for a wonderful future. Like all relationships, respect, understanding, truth, and kindness seem to still be key.

Getting Fit with Ballroom.

By Tia Cristy

 

Getting Fit with Ballroom.

Getting fit in the winter can be a chore, but what if you were getting fit doing a hobby? I watched Dancing with Stars a few times and found myself mesmerized by the fact that these people, who have no training in the beginning, can dance gracefully by the end. How cool is it to learn the style of Cary Grant while toning your body? Honestly, there is something sexy about a person that knows how to dance. It shows they have rhythm and class on the dance floor. Where else in life could they have rhythm and class?
I was at an appearance the other week, and I met The Blueball Room Dance Company. Their moves were flawless. I think owner Ken Richards and dancer Jonathan saw the interest in my eyes instantly, and invited me to attend the school’s weekly dance party. I’ve never ballroom danced before. I was scared, truthfully. I was unsure if I could do it, let alone, I had surgery years ago that left me with limitations. Could I really dance like they do on T.V.? But, I figured I would go and observe.

As I open the front door to the ball room, a winding staircase greeted me. As I climbed the steps, the room was beautiful with delicate lighting. It was surprising. It wasn’t a cold white room with plain mirrors, it was warm and inviting. I was greeted by students, immediately. Their ages ranged from 21+. One man was well over 60. The mix of the crowd was wonderful and comfortable. The training level was from beginner to almost pro. A group of ladies invited me to sit with them. I sat at the round lounge style table and focused on the dance floor. I watched as the participants partake in a Viennese Waltz. It was stunning. I couldn’t imagine myself being able to do that. When the song ended, without a word, everyone came towards the sitting area and grabbed a new partner to dance with. I watched this exchange happen for three songs, before international dancer Johnny, grabbed my hand and led me to the dance floor. I pleaded with him that I had no idea of what I was doing. He didn’t care. He guided my steps and stayed patient with me as I tripped all over his feet. When the song ended he escorted me back to my seat and told me I was fantastic. I felt elated. I did it. Not well, but I did it.

As I started to sit with a smile on my face, the next person reached their hand out towards me. Once again, I confessed my doubt in myself. But, they didn’t care either. Needless to say, I danced the entire time. And, I loved every minute of it. Even at the moment, I almost fell on my face. Apparently, there’s no room to feel self-conscious there. Everyone was a beginner at one point. I learned in that time, the concept of several different dances. I loved each dance from the waltz’s to the rhythm Latin. When instructor Jonathan took my hand towards the end of the night, he had me spinning all over the dance floor. For a moment, I believed I knew what I was doing. It was incredible.

When the dance floor came to a close, I felt infused physically and emotionally. I felt intensely fit and happy. I knew at that moment I was hooked on the art of dance as a new outlet for health. I was still nervous on how I would feel later. Would my knees hurt? How about my muscles? I anticipated feeling it the next day, but when I woke up I still felt energy that I didn’t have the day before. My breathing felt strong, my muscles felt good, and I knew I was definitely ready to dance again.

The thing I learned most was I didn’t have to know how to dance prior to this, I didn’t have to have a special excuse to be there, and I didn’t have to have a partner with me. I never thought ballroom dancing could be a solo hobby, but there were plenty of dancers to go around. Dancing helps with balance, breathing, memory, coordination, toning muscles, building strength, relieving stress and overall health benefits.

The Blueball Room offers private and group lessons. The classes range from beginner, bronze and silver. They also offer hip hop dance once a week. If you want to learn to dance for a wedding or just because you always wanted to learn, like me, get in touch with The Blueball Room. The cost is so affordable starting at $70 for single, $105 for a couple for four weeks.

Look out Dancing with the Stars, I’ll be ready soon! Keep a lookout for my progress on TipsfromTia Facebook Page!

Let’s Review, O Wow: Discovering Your Ultimate Orgasm.

By Tia Cristy

Let’s Review, O Wow: Discovering Your Ultimate Orgasm.

The latest book from author and Sex Expert, Jenny Block.

“O Wow: Discovering Your Ultimate Orgasm” By, Jenny Block
“O Wow: Discovering Your Ultimate Orgasm” By, Jenny Block

They say every time and place has a purpose. I always look for the learning experience in something new or learning about other people and how they live. Not only does it help me in my life, but it also can help me understand what’s truly important to my readers. Yet while on holiday, I never expected I was about to start learning something that can benefit all sexually mature women, no matter if you are straight, gay, attached, or solo.

As I sat at the bar of a restaurant on a Sunday afternoon waiting, frustrated on a man, I befriend two women who turn out to be nationally known chefs, Jeana Johnson and Colleen O’Hare who own the Dallas hotspot, Mot Ha Bai. As Jeana and I discussed the decadent cheeses of Vermont and the pairing of wines, soccer played on the big screen. Jeana informed me because I am writer that I must become friends with one of her dearest friends, Jenny Block. Within one message to Jenny, we became social media friends, instantly.

Upon my returning from holiday, Jenny Block and I had time to discover more about each others writing background. I was impressed to hear about her credentials in print and on T.V. But not only that, Jenny Block is known as a Sex Expert. When Jenny told me she was getting ready to release her new book and sent me a copy, I knew this would be something for my female readers.

Some women out there would claim it’s as mystical as a unicorn, but according to daring author, Jenny Block and her latest book, “O Wow: Discovering Your Ultimate Orgasm” it’s not only possible, but practically a guarantee to happen if you follow these proven instructions.

With “O Wow…” Jenny valiantly shares her own experiences with both men and women. The once married to a man, woman, now considers herself a lesbian. But, this book isn’t about sexual orientation, it’s about the pleasure a woman needs and deserves, and how to achieve it. Jenny’s personal, sexual journey has led her to be able to share her knowledge with all women (and those men whom are looking for the tips on giving the best pleasure to their woman). Jenny says the secret is in, how I like to remember them, the four P’s. Here’s a hint, Patience is the first one.

Having SAFE sex is strongly important with any sexual activity, and Jenny tells us how condoms won’t impede on either women’s or men’s pleasure when approaching sex with the proper methods. Boldly, Jenny tackles talking about every place on the body with nerve endings that could possibly be the ticket to someone’s personal ultimate. She acknowledges that some techniques may not be for everybody, but the point is for her readers to achieve their own personal ultimate orgasm without embarrassment. My favorite thing that Jenny has shared in this book is the fact that now she is in a loving, monogamous relationship, and this, she believes was one of the key points to her finally discovering the ultimate orgasm.

The Most Romantic Ways to Propose Your Girlfriend.

When you think about it, there are only so many moments in everyone’s lives that deserve to be called truly memorable. And if you think a little bit more, all the places you were looking for them were wrong. Your favorite team winning the Championship or your favorite movie finally getting a sequel is certainly falling into this group. Your girlfriend saying the “Big Yes”, on the other side, will mark one giant milestone and change both of your lives for the better. So, with things as they are why you would not be a bit romantic and make this day pop up in your memories even more?

Propose Your Girlfriend at Her Favorite Place

It may be the house where she grew up, some museum or monument, the place where you first met, or the place you shared the first kiss. It really does not matter, as long as she holds it close to her heart. Once you are there, ask someone to take a picture of you two. Of course, instead of posing you will kneel and propose her. This way you should give the place she already considers important entirely new significance in her heart and make her very happy.

Propose Your Girlfriend in the New Year’s Eve

New Year marks the new beginning in everyone’s lives. Is there any more appropriate date than to propose your girlfriend than New Year’s Eve? To do this, virtually any place on the world will serve you just fine, but for the best effect, take her to some restaurant with a balcony or a view to an open sky. Wait until the midnight approaches, take her out and ask her to marry you. Give her some excuse to answer until midnight, and when she finally says “Yes”, share the romantic kiss under the glorious New Year fireworks.

Propose Your Girlfriend with a Building Sign

There are several ways to do that. For, example you can take your girlfriend to a picnic in the city park, and once you open up a champagne bottle, signal your friends in the nearby building to uncover giant “Marry me” building sign. Alternatively, you can arrange with a taxi driver to take a deliberate deflection from the route you are usually traveling together, and then stop somewhere building sign will be clearly visible, or rent the sign opposite to your favorite restaurant.

Propose Your Girlfriend in a Balloon

Take your future fiancé to a ride above your city, or some romantic landscape if that is what you prefer. Once you are high enough, and the whole world seems far beneath you, go down on your knees, take out the ring, and ask your girlfriend’s hand. Turning on some appropriate tune, can certainly do you no harm. Alternatively, you can fly above the gigantic “Marry me” sign which will be visible from your balloon only.

Propose Your Girlfriend in the Street

Although city streets do not look like too romantic backdrop for proposal, they give you enough freedom and a lot to play with. Ask a group of people to pose as bystanders and let them raise the letters forming “Will You Marry Me” when you signal them. Or you can stage a little performance spiced with street musicians playing your favorite song, and your friends popping up from their hidings with applause after she says “Yes”. Larger the scale, the better.

Although the wedding usually steals the spotlight as the most important moment in one pair’s together life, proposal still remains the most romantic one. Don’t allow it to become wasted. Instead, do your best to make it as memorable and nice as possible, so you and your future wife will always have something to remember in the quiet, romantic moments.

Back to school- few ideas to “borrow” from teenagers. By Guest Blogger, Daniel R.

Back to school- few ideas to “borrow” from teenagers

Years ago you were a cheerful teenager with passion for energy and party time, and now when you’re an adult version of yourself with lovely family and comfy house, you sometimes find yourself longing for good old times of constant fun and nonchalant lifestyle. It’s not that your “totally family man” life is less interesting and enjoying, but it’s about seeing your teenage kids living the life to the fullest and you being nostalgic about the time when you looked on the world through the pink eyeglasses. Well, if this looks like something going through your head these days, it is perfect time to evoke your high school memories by trying again cool teenage adventures:

Stay young at heart

While you’re relaxing in your comfy backyard armchair, go back to the times when you and your friends had a high school rock band and every weekend was only about gathering together, playing good old rock n’ roll hits and having hilarious party time. Instead of being lethargic and dejected, why wouldn’t you give a buzz to couple of your high-school mates and suggest them re-establishing of your old rock band. Wipe the dust from your old-school guitar, agree weekend “rocking sessions” and feel how the adrenalin warms up your blood again. Even after you’ve become a parent, don’t forget to keep your inner child as well.

Buy an old-timer cabriolet

Well, yes, you’ll invest a bit more money into this “teen-spirited” project, but when you sit into your laid-back -style cabriolet, turn the music on and feel the breeze in your hair, you won’t regret a single penny you spent on it. Give yourself 5 minutes of high-school fame, recall irresistible teenage vibe and hit the roads, Jack!

Camp beside the lake

Gather your friends and organize relishing weekend camping beside the lake, just like you did during your high-school summer holidays, with campfire, barbequing and swimming included. It’s never late to remind your wife on how she felt in love with you, and long walks alongside the lake, lovely moments beneath stunning sunset are just perfect opportunities for that.

Brighten up your life

Instead of letting your days pass in monotony and routine, better enter more light into your life and feel the charms of afternoon sun by spending more time outside. You can let the sun embrace your living space even when you’re inside, so while considering replacing the windows with retrofit double glazing in order to get more light and refreshed ambient, think like an adult, not a teenager.

Forget about worries

Worries are only causing you to get older faster, so forget about them for a while and live just for the moment. Why wouldn’t you do the first silly thing which comes to your mind? Paragliding – why not? If you think out, it’s better to pay for adventure which will realize your dreams and bring the joy into your life, than gambling the money in the casino – although even that has certain charms, as long as you’re not overdoing it.

Even though it was said so many times before, but regardless how many years you have- remember that life is short and it’s never too late to live it to the fullest even if it means reviving your teenage self.

Run in your Stocking?

Run in your Stocking?

 

It’s happened to the best of us. A small runner in a stocking can turn into a disaster on your legs.

Stop that run in it’s tracks!

Keep a small bottle of clear nail polish in your bag. (It has plenty of good purposes for other things, as well) tipsfromtia.com nail polish

At the first sign of a run; apply two coats over the run, right on your skin. This will stop the run from going any further.

Here’s a quick fix to remove it, and no washing is necessary. Take a dark towel so it doesn’t leave light colored fuzzy’s behind it you best bet. Wipe the white stain aggressively and it will disappear. It it still shows a little, you may need to add a little water to the towel.

Using your towel from your recent shower seems to work the best since it has a dampness to it already.
